The Wonderful World of Whoopers

presented by Ken Lavish

Join Ken Lavish, a volunteer at Patuxent Wildlife Research Refuge, to learn about efforts to save the endangered Whooping Crane from extinction.  He will discuss characteristics of Whooping Cranes, how they became so endangered, recovery efforts prior to the current protocols, and the protocols now in place to save these magnificent birds.  Ken works as a surrogate crane Dad for the young birds and will share some of his experiences of what it is like working with newly hatched Whooping Crane chicks.

The April - May 2015 Bluebird newsletter is now online!

You can view
current and past issues of our newsletter, The Bluebird, on the Newsletter page.  

Welcome to the home page of the Prince George's Audubon Society (PGAS), a local chapter of the National Audubon Society serving Audubon members in the northern part of Prince George's County, Maryland.  PGAS was established in 1972 as a non-profit organization with officers and a board of directors, all volunteers, elected by the general membership.  Membership in PGAS is obtained through the National Audubon Society.  PGAS members receive our chaper newsletter, The Bluebird, and are encouraged to actively participate in chapter activities including a monthly speaker series, field trips, annual bird counts, and other special events. 

This website is for members of PGAS to keep up to date on program and field trip schedules and other chapter activities.  In addition, this website serves as a resource for non-members to find out more about Audubon and PGAS and to explore the benefits of membership.  Non-members are welcome to participate in our meetings and field trips and are free to take advantage of the local birding and environmental information on this website as well as the links to a wide range of related information available on the internet.  Of course, if you live in northern Prince George's County we would love to have you as a PGAS member, and membership information is always available.
